states gets elected and has views, take president george w. bush. he gave a speech at the sit ta d citadel, any changes that are made are tend to be made over the objection of the congress, the defense contractors, and the permanent bureaucracy. they're comfortable with the way it is. they've concluded that that's the way it ought to be. and if a president gets elected and comes in to office with different views, there tends to be natural opposition to i canceled the crusader program. i can't think of a worse name in this environment we're if than the crusader, but it was an enormous artillery piece that took two aircraft to move anywhere in the world. certainly not something that was appropriate for the 21st century and the asymmetric warfare that we're facing. and the opposition to it was just incredible. i mean, retired community in the army, the active duty community in the army, the civilian contractors, the congress. i'll give you an example. just a data point. when i was second of defense in the '70s, the defense authorization bill was 74 pages long. when i came back, in the

in the george w. bush administration. cheney, rumsfeld and colin powell and richard r. medish who had risen with them in sight of the republican party. despite all the differences among the members of the previous administration, they shared some common traits and beliefs. all of them had backgrounds in the military or in the pentagon and this was true of the secretary of state who had been the chairman of that joint chiefs of staff. richard r. medish as it was of cheney and rumsfeld. it's rare to have an administration with the former secretary of defense. and they also shared some common beliefs. america was unquestionably a force for good in the world. a military power was of supreme importance and in fact the disagreements among them were halgand win force should be used for the united states should be saved for the big war were used for house it was in iraq. immediately after obama's election in 2008i decided i wanted to take a look at the democrats over the same time period. many of my books have covered the same time period from the 60's through the present day. and i kind of come ac

bush, to president clinton, to george w. bush. the united states has always played a very, very important role as a mediator in that conflict. and, again, and it totally contradicts what he said before about the obama administration not doing enough. so it just seems like this guy is incapable of making mistakes. and you hear a lot of the republicans saying, although he is getting criticized by some republicans, you hear a lot of republicans saying this doesn't matter. i think it does because americans care how they're represented abroad. >> go ahead. >> i just have to jump in about this. i think this is not a good moment for romney, and it just sort of suggest he is not ready for the world stage. but i'm not sure how much american voters care about being embarrassed on the world stage. i mean we did elect george bush twice. and he wasn't exactly, you know, a good ambassador for american culture. i mean he was kind of the typical -- in some ways i think people were proud of his being an ugly american. so i'm not sure how much this matters for voters. i think this is more a case

this repudiation of george w. bush, i know he's not coming to the convention, but he signed sarbanes oxley. oxley is mike oxley mitigating circumstance predsessor as chairman of the committee. it's an accounting requirement. and what this does is to make another chunk out of that regulation. maybe we hear different people. the american people -- my friend says the american people are crying out for an end to regulation. every indication i have is everybody is tired of irresponsibility, by a few, not everybody, but they are tired of people being scammed and the notion that the fact -- that what we need is less regulation is an odd one. it comes from people who didn't see the cry sess we had because sarbanes-oxley came about after enron. so i would align myself with president bush, i think he got this up with right. i think mike oxley got this one right. for startups, for people about to go public, they have a $250 million exemption. but to give a permanent exemption is a mistake and don't start monkeying with cost benefit analysis. the chair: the gentleman's time has expired. the question is on th
to make the argument that mitt romney's foreign policy as a return to george w. bush. he left office very unpopular with respect to his foreign policy. obama will argue that he inherited a mess, at a less secure world, and he has made it more secure. mitt romney is advocating the same policies as george w. bush and will try to paint them as being reckless, too quick to use force, and the like. one more direct line of attack that was tried already was mitt romney did make some statement saying that he did not think we should galavant the world and spent billions of dollars trying to find one person. he criticized obama's statement that he would go inside pakistan after bin laden. obama will try to track that out to show that mitt romney is not tough on terrorism. i think he will try to make the argument that mitt romney is trapped in the past and maybe making -- his statements that russia is our number one geopolitical cell was mocked by a lot of people in the foreign- policy establishment, including a lot of republicans. the arms control agreement was -- had very strong bipartisan support
